Moving Forward – Pre-Surgery Class for Total Joint Replacement

  • total joint replacement surgery
  • care and management before and after surgery

This class is presented by highly skilled and trained orthopedic nurses, and the covered was developed by a multidisciplinary team of dietitians, physical therapists, occupational therapists and certified orthopedic RNs. Class content covers the best and most current evidence-based practices in total joint care, with information coming from resources such as the National Association of Orthopedic Nurses.

Participants in the class will learn:

  • basic anatomy of joint replacement
  • pain management
  • prevention of surgical risks
